      Konishi Karashigoi

      This is my 2yr old male Konishi Karashigoi, it's around 23in. Will it potentially get bigger next year? What are your critiques?

      The only flaw I see on this male is that one scale that's darker on its right shoulder. No idea how large konishi males get. The females can go to a meter.

      That one scale bugs me knowing its there but at least it’s less noticeable since the fish has colored up to more of a mustard color.

      I went to Konishi a couple of times and, on one trip, saw 24" Karashigoi Tosai, but they were way overpriced so I never bought anything there. They are impressive though.

      How much yours grows will depend on your keeping and feeding skills as it does have the potential to become quite large.
      people like to vehemently defend their purchases and find it incredulous that anything could be better
